Administrative building focused on presenting an extending and open balcony. It is a focal point of the square on its south side. The dimension of the square was the main consideration and formulating a horizontal performance of the building design. Exhibition building is designed into a cubic shape. The design of the entrance gives people a strong perceptual experience. LED lighting system is decorated on the top of the elevation which makes a romantic and quiet environment at the night time.

Canteen, together with the courtyard on its east side, is the most important outdoor leisure public space in the planning. Sports building incorporates facilities for swimming and fitness. The shape of the building has got a character of sculpture. Data centre is the only building of all that uses metal on the façade to show a digitalized character.
